Kids will have a blast surfing the waves on their flutter boards. We’re just the perfect height when we were there. Wonderful sand to walk on. Beach is short, but sweet. Seemed to be lots of parking.

Nice locale - and the masses of rocks they've brought in as you walk towards the beach make a nice clean access. The walk along Freshwater Lake is cool - you can see ocean on one side, freshwater on the other.

Lovely large beach where there are shallow areas for families and children to enjoy on a hot summer day or stroll in the off season I would think. A must do

We spent the day driving the Cabot Trail through the National Park and intended to do a hike later. We had packed a picnic lunch and found a perfect picnic table at Ingonish Beach. In the shade and near the water with clean public bathrooms.

This clean beach had wonderful strong waves for our enjoyment. My granddaughter enjoyed herself. Ynhusband and I found it so relaxing hearing the ocean and looking at the gorgeous views.

We made an impromptu stop for a BBQ lunch and swim. The beach was lovely. Although it was a hot day, there were not too many people. A bit rocky but the kids loved playing in the waves!

It was a small, windy beach. No much there but it's like alot of places along the coast. It close to town and restaurants. Very touristy but very clean.

A nice beach with parking and restrooms. Easy to get there and nice shallow waters. Probably depending on the tide

Great sandy beach with ample parking and facilities to change. Lifeguards on duty. Weather was good and the water inviting and not cold as expected.
